Click above for a hi-res gallery of the Sports Modulo S2000 Concept and friends

Detroit's not the only auto show kicking off on January 11. The annual Tokyo Auto Salon (think "Japanese SEMA") also kicks off this Sunday, and Honda has announced the vehicle lineup it'll display at Makuhari Messe. The two headliners are the Sports Modulo S2000 and Fit concepts. The former is a somewhat ghastly take on Honda's two-seat sports car, with a face that belongs in an aquarium and side cladding straight from a '90s Pontiac stylist's wildest fantasies. Inside, the Sports Modulo S2000 Concept is actually very nice, with swanky brown leather adorning a variety of surfaces. It still doesn't atone for that clock-stoppingly ugly body kit, though. Read on for some brief commentary on a pair of other concepts headed to the show, and check out the gallery below for the complete model rundown.

The Sports Modulo Fit Concept is so orange, all that's missing is a Fanta logo on the doors. Not even the wheels are left untouched -- one spoke on each of the gunmetal grey Modulo rims gets the Sunkist treatment. Inside, it looks as if Halloween exploded all over the cabin. What isn't black is orange, and you'll find sport seats, a sport steering wheel, supplemental gauges, etc. Did we mention that there's orange?

The last ride we'll touch on before sending you to the gallery to check out the rest is the Honda Life Style Study. This is a girl's car. Period. It's got pink paint, pink wheels, patterned pink seat covers, and appears to have been set upon -- inside and out, mind you -- by a horde of Bedazzler-wielding Japanese schoolgirls. There are rhinestones everywhere. This is not something Steve McQueen would have driven.



As for the rest, it's a mix of new cars like the Honda Zest Spark, tricked production vehicles such as the Sports Modulo Civic Type R and Touring Modulo Accord Tourer (winner in the 'Best Name" category), and a smattering of other design studies. They're all labeled in the gallery below.

      The first thing I thought of when I saw that bumper on the S2000 was 'Mazda Furai Concept'.
        • 6 Years Ago
        congrats honda for building the ugliest cars by far of any large automaker!
      • 6 Years Ago
      S2000 FTW. I would love to have it back in the USDM.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Ugh. No wonder Hyundai is doing so well...
        • 6 Years Ago
        yes, most are disasters, but the grill of the jdm accord, along the lines of the old accord, looks much better than current tsx.

      Even girls won't drive something like that (The "Honda Life Style Study") :|
        • 6 Years Ago
        they went apesh*it with that bedazzler!
        • 6 Years Ago
        ESPECIALLY girls. They love big cars and trucks. Everytime I ask a gf is she wants to get a Mini or Beetle she gives me a disgusted look and picks a X3 or CX-7 instead. The last thing they want is to be seen in a girly car.
      • 6 Years Ago
      The pink car has some BLING! BLING! lol
      • 6 Years Ago
      I don't know about you guys, but I think the brown interior, especially the seats looks nice. It'd be much better with a tan interior and white exterior though imo.

      If I were to ever buy a new TSX my first after sale purchase would be the grill from the Euro Accord. I love Honda but they are really getting on my nerves lately with their designs. They are very good overall but there is always something that looks..well..just wrong about them. I personally do not know anyone over the age of 11 that would drive that "Honda Life Style Study" crap. I guess if the Hello Kitty series was ever made into a live action movie you would see this car in action. My daughter would love it, but, um, she's 7 and I don't think she could swing the payments on her allowance. What the hell were they thinking.

      Please cut it out Honda, please. Please do something interesting to the Acura lineup in America instead of wasting efforts to make (really tasteless) auto show history. One last request.. Please bring back the RSX (Integra)!

      This is just a concept (and a very ugly one at that) so hopefully they will never make it. Why they even bother is beyond me, this car needs to be put to rest. FYI - the nav screen has been available in the JDM model for a while.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I really wish Honda would bring back the Accord Wagon. That is one nice looking wagon IMO.
      • 6 Years Ago
      That S2K exterior is gross, but Honda really ought to have redesigned the interior along those lines years ago.

      The addition of a navigation screen is a major improvement, as is the more traditional gauge cluster. I never got comfortable with the orange/red LCD display in the stock S2K, and it looked dated only a year after its introduction.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Orange carbon fiber!?!! Hideous. And the blinged out Hello Kitty is laughable.
      • 6 Years Ago
      S2000? What's that?
